Despite a vast expense of flatness, we are blessed
with a magnificent chain of sea cliff stretching between
Yallingup and Esperance.
Bob’s Hollow | Located off Caves Road, this can only be
accessed by 4WD from Bob’s Hollow Road or Conto Road.
If you don’t have a car, make sure you have a good pair of
walking shoes! Bob’s is famous for steep limestone walls,
strange stalactite formations and white sandy beaches. It is
mostly sport climbing at Bob’s, with about 20 established
routes up to 45m in height. Reach the top and be rewarded
with breathtaking views of the ocean and bushland.
Walcliffe | A sport climbing area with 20 established routes,
Walcliffe is located near Prevelly Park and accessed off
Caves Road via Surfers Point Road. The deceptively steep
sweep of limestone stretches for 100m along the southern
bank of the picturesque Margaret River. There is an
interesting bouldering area on the right-hand end of the
cliff, with safe landings and numerous edges, pockets and
slopers, plus a long traverse with many variants.
Something for everyone
Wilyabrup | The largest and best-known climbing spot in
the region, this is superb, sun-drenched granite stretching
over 500m along the ocean front. There are many climbs for
various grades, and options for traditional climbing. One
of the most famous climbs has a resident carpet python on
it (we won’t tell you which one!). Access is off Wilyabrup
Road and a short but beautiful hike in. Follow the sound of
the crashing waves.
Recently opened in Malaga,
City Summit is to be Perth’s
largest climbing centre.
With 10m-high walls and long
traversing climbs, 40 top roping
stations, three lead-climbing
areas, a 5m high bouldering cave,
functions area, cafe and pro shop,
City Summit goes beyond being
just an indoor climbing gym.
